05/20/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Shhhhh, don’t tell Ranger he’s considered a ‘senior’ as he’ll never believe you! If I didn’t know his history I wouldn’t believe it either, although his dignified and stately gray muzzle does give it away. So handsome in his sleek glossy coat, Ranger is all about making new friends giving me kisses on our first date! Surrendered by a new owner as he can’t afford the cost of a pet, we’re told that he’s housetrained (yep, he went potty as soon as we were out the door), lived with 3 adults, is friendly to all, friendly to dogs met in a dog park (no play, but respectful in greeting), loves to play tug and chase, is well behaved when left home alone, and knows ‘sit’, ‘down’ ‘paw’ and ‘stay’. Ranger showed me his sit in exchange for a treat which he takes gently, his tail never stops wagging (I have pictures to prove it), and he’s spry and fun. Interested in everything go on around him, his perfect energy level including a little dance for a treat, coupled with his affectionate personality make him a perfect companion. Bright eyed and alert, Ranger is looking for his soul mate, and hopes to meet his new person or family quickly. Kisses and tail wags await when you meet Ranger — do it today.
